The Cornubian Index
This list of Cornish travellers appeared in The Cornubian newspaper. The 1911 – 1916 period has been transcribed and published resulting in a list, in surname order, of over 2000 names of Cornish people who travelled to or from America and stayed en route at Sid Blake’s hotel in New York. Surname, forename, date of travel, where travelling from and to are given.
